I say you do not like any reports that do not agree with your predisposed view, because past experience, and this;
Perhaps you did become overly aggressive in the other topic, perhaps not. If so, perhaps we both dug in our heels and reacted poorly.
I never said the Covid19 is not contagious, nor that it is not something to worry about. I look at many sources, including sources from Europe and Britain, and those, plus current data from the US, shows a serious problem particularly the 60% plus deaths from nursing homes, and New York issuing rules requiring nursing homes to take Covid19 patients. That does not alter the fact the mortality rate is not as high as they claim or made it sound it would be with the fear mongering, but I think some of that was political. Birx herself said they will count all deaths as Covid deaths, if the test is positive, regardless of actual cause of death.
I can understand having a new child, and people become a little more panicky and concerned with the first child, and there is nothing wrong with that, as it is new and a learning process. Each parent is different even in normal times, so adding in a virus can do much to keep you on edge. That being said, I would consider it a simple matter of choice. Those who are at risk or concerned may choose to stay home or avoid contact as much as possible, but others can continue to live.
I point these out, and guess I took your comment here and in another topic to be more in line with anything that helps… such as the left always says… ‘if it saves one life’ (all while ignoring the deaths of abortion that they also support). I have a concern, that once precedent is set, once we the people allow government to issue zip code wide quarantines and lock away people without due process. even if it is in their own homes, arrest those who try to freely travel, go to the beach (and remember, there are reports that state the virus is killed in the sun), punishing people for their rights, and those who want to operate their business…and the total ignoring of the Rule of Law and the Constitution, to curtail rights, in a tyrannical totalitarian manner, we might open the door to government declaring an emergency to shut us down during a flu season (we have had upwards of 60K deaths this season alone and states like Virginia with Governor ‘Blackface’ Northam who is acting as a tyrant and subverting the Constitution where there were 800 flu deaths this season, and so far only 544 Covid19 deaths), it seems we have not panicked over the flu (which is deadly to some… and what do we say to those families who lost loved ones to the flu, sorry, but it was not Covid19?) Sorry if that sounds flippant…
Can you see the government, once they taste power they were never to have, holding that power, declaring emergencies… and suspending the Constitution? I can.
They have done it before, using emergencies, and we never did get all of the power back from them.

Perhaps being older, I have seen things that are concerning, and seen things like pandemics that government should not get involved in, except perhaps to close the borders to reduce the potential number of infected from entering the nation.
I worked in the Intelligence Community many years ago, swore to defend the Constitution, and believe in our founding principles. That may make me a little more hard edged and I do apologize if my comment comes across that way, as it is intended to provide other views and something to consider, not to totally change your mind, but to look at other sources and combine the information (as I also believe none are providing all the information and we must consider parts from many sources and somewhere in there is information that might be useful.
